The option to move selected posts is gone in the upgrage to 8.1.1

I am not sure if this is a bug, or by design.

It seems that the option under "Topic/poll actions" no longer contains the "move post". I can move the entire topic, but not selected posts.

The merge posts does nothing. It is not even present in all forums.

I am building another site using a new install of OCP, and those options are present. This brings me to think it may have been an upgrader problem.

Any ideas?

It's under the 'Marked posts' drop-down, if the user has permission to edit the topic.

I guess some of the permissions changed during this upgrade. Where the 'market posts' drop-down used to be I only have 'Order'.

That actually sounds like the forum-view rather than the topic-view.

I guess if it's resolved or not :lol:? Were you looking at the wrong screen in the end, or did some templates get scrambled, or maybe you had meant 'move topics' rather than 'move posts'?

I meant move posts. To be candid, I am not sure what happened the first two times I tried to move posts. The forum had one topic that included more than 4,300 posts. I attempted to move a number of the posts using the 'merge posts into' function. I created a new forum topic in the archive forum. I moved the entire topic to the archive.

I think I must have used the move topic thinking that the move post feature was where it used to be.

Bottom line:
Whatever I did was wrong. There is no issue. Sorry for wasting your time.
